“Family of 6 says BEYOND AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Little Corn B & B was a tremendous place to end our 3 week vacation in Nicaragua. The setting is beautiful, the staff are outstanding and the food was BEYOND AMAZING. The bungalows are nicely appointed, simple and very clean. The beds are comfortable and when you open your door in the morning to a view of the ocean and coffee on your deck....well I wish I was still there. So what did we do with our 4 kids for a week? We went swimming, played lots of board games, cards and chess. The older boys went diving, snorkeling, baseball on the beach with a stick and a few coconuts and water football (also with coconuts). The food deserves a special mention! Being remote, I am not sure how the staff managed to prepare such delicious meals but they do!! You must go .....taste and see for yourself!

Michelle, we enjoyed having your family here at LCBB. What a fun bunch to have around! Thank you for noting the Turned Turtle Restaurants tasty food and the fact that you enjoyed the RADDeal which it sounds like helped make your stay memorable. We hope to see you all back on LCI soon!

Stayed here for a few days in early September, all the great reviews we read were true. We got one of the King bungelows and it was nice with a comfortable bed. The staff and food here are outstanding, one of the best steaks I can remember having in some time. Being able to relax in one of the many hammocks and then have a replacement beer delivered without having to move was priceless ! This isnt a 5 star get attention all the time kind of place which is just what we like, a relaxed but attentive staff who will check in on you from time to time. Great snorkel boat trip right from the beach for $15-20 per person which I highly recommend. We really enjoyed corn island as a whole, the west side is much different which makes the island pretty unique with all the locals and walking trails between the two coast's. We had a great stay I might say the one thing that could be improved was the lack of beach chaise loungers available, we only saw two and this place has like 8 bungelows or so, we never got to lay out at the beach :( Also the bungelows are literally two feet apart, you will hear what your neighbors are up too, just saying. All in all a great place and I hope we can return at some point. Cheers -

Our Turned Turtle Restaurant serves the healthiest and freshest food that we possibly can. Along with that goal we try never to compromise on taste or service. We are so glad that you enjoyed the hard work of our Nicaraguan staff! We currently have 3 lounge chairs (and as noted, lots of hammocks), unfortunately, one had been broken (since repaired) while you were. We think that by the time you visit us again, there will be more beach lounge chairs. Thanks so much for your kind words and we wish you save travels!

Just left LCBB on 9/13, incredible place to stay and relax. Stayed in the bunkhouse and the only "complaint" was the small deck size, then 2 days before we left they started the expansion on the deck (talk about making the customer experience better). Staff was incredible and really went out of their way to make the experience awesome for their guests. The RADD plan worked great for me and the meals were very tasty and filling. Will be going back as soon as I can but afraid that might be 2015 because of other trips planned. If anyone has any questions about this resort or my trip feel free to contact me on TripAdvisor.

Room Tip: The Bunkhouse doesn't get the breeze that the other cabanas do which makes it hotter but a short...

After my first visit in April of this year, I knew I had to go back with my husband. The main reason was for Bubba, a popsicle colored kitty whom I adore! The second reason was to show my husband, Jeff, why I fell in love with this island. LCI is about relaxation and that's what you get. A peaceful oasis paradise.
The bungalows and property are well maintained and clean. No TV's or radios to distract the sound of waves crashing on the beach. We left our front doors open all the time without fear of being stolen from. For the most part, we wanted Bubba to come and as he pleased. I brought cat food with me this time. I haven't found a store that sells it. You must love animals because they care for several. Bubba and Puff Puff are kitty siblings. Several sweet dogs, Minnow, I can't remember all their names but the smoking dog I'll never forget. His bark sounds like he's been a smoker since birth! And Lola, a rescued parrot. It was entertaining to see Dave, Scott and my husband search for her in the palm trees every night.
Our most difficult decision was when and where we should eat! The food at LCBB, Turned Turtle was better than I remembered. We thought the portions were perfect. Being Americans, we always expect more! Speaking if more, the pina colada's could have been in a larger glass...they are scrumptious! Oh, the coconut cookies are amazing too!! I wonder if they would send me some??! Or the receipe??! Hmmm, probably wouldn't be the same, I'm sure. I would haved loved a fruit smoothie before we left. Unfortunately, they had some trouble getting good bananas. Next time.
Lets see, I could go on and on with compliments. I was shocked to learn Scott and Krstine had been opened just a few years. They know what it takes to run a successful business. The staff are well trained and genuinely nice, caring people, especially Dave.
LCBB doesn't offer horseback riding, scuba diving or snorkeling but the places and people referred to you are just as great!
I was so excited to get another massage from Sara, the owner of Firefly yoga studio behind LCBB. However, Sara was visiting her family during our vacation. I was given complete access to use the studio and their equipment, (mats, blocks, cushions) for my personal yoga practice. Once Julie, Sara's colleague, arrived towards the end of the week to offer massages, I was first to sign up! Julie is a sweet lady and what a massage therapist!! Either way you choose, Sara or Julie, you come out winning!!
There is no doubt we will return. As long as it stays exactly the same!!
Thanks to everyone for a memorable holiday!!

P.S. One suggestion, a couple more each loungers :)

Boy does Bubba miss you!!! He camped out on your deck for three days after you left (he is back sleeping at our place now). Thank you for bringing your husband with you on this visit. It was a pleasure having him around and he got to be a pretty good parrot spotter too. We are super happy also that our restaurant passed muster this time around. Bubba, as well as the rest of the animal clan hope you hurry back to Little Corn Island.

Our stay at LCBB was generally nice. What really struck us was how friendly the staff were and their great service. The food was very good, although a bit overloaded on butter, oil and seasonings, but it was a nice variety for such an isolated place for sure. The rooms were excellent. The property was very nice and well maintained. I appreciated how well they worked with limited resources being on this little island. We bought the RADD package but I don't think we really got our money's work from it as there were a number of factors that worked against us... the massage / yoga person (which was something we were really looking forward to) was not on the island for personal reasons so there was nothing in that area available, One of the two full days we were there was very stormy with rain downpours and thunder and wind which limited things like snorkeling and water / beach activities and then I got very sick the night we arrived and spent that whole stormy day in bed and in the bathroom, eating and drinking almost nothing! I realize that none of these things were the fault of the LCBB but we still had to pay the extra $80.00 per day while not being able to make use of it. We had one very nice day there and did get one snorkeling trip in with Elvis, which was very nice. I was really wanting to see some sharks and I did so that was fantastic!

It is quite an effort and expense to get to LCBB from the mainland, so I don't know if we would return again but I'm glad we got to experience it. It is an above average accommodation for sure.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and restaurant, your feedback is very important to us. We do remember that you were not feeling well and we are sorry that you could not utilize all the benefits included in the RADD deal. As we mention in another review, guests occasionally forget that the "deal" also INCLUDES A 15% DISCOUNT ON YOUR CABIN. After your kind review we took a look at your specific bill and thankfully found that with this benefit you did save money. We appreciate all reviews as they help us insure that we keep the well being of our guests first in our minds. Safe travels!

This is a little touch of paradise. We spent four nights at LCBB and would have stayed longer if we could. The rooms are spotless and the attention to detail was very special from the welcome piña colada to the crisp bedding neatly turned down every day. The evening meals were excellent though we found the portions very large so shared one between two. The snorkelling trip organised by the hotel is a must with sightings of rays, a turtle and several nurse sharks. From walking around the island and looking at other accommodation, we concluded this was the only place to stay on Little Corn.
